Kayden Xie

Burnside College, Wallsend 
Natural Sciences student at Homerton College, Cambridge

Kayden is also one of our 2016-17 cohort. His Linacre tutor from Westminster School said this about him: “Kayden is one of the most curious and thoughtful students I have met, and he is demonstrably passionate about science. That he has such potential and intellectual prowess and remains so modest, understated and utterly engaged in scientific conversations is testament to his mature and reflective personality.” 

Kayden says: “I really can’t begin to even express how thankful I am for this opportunity. The experience has truly been so precious that I almost feel bad for being one of the lucky few to be a part of the scheme. It has helped me in so many ways, and I feel ready now to apply everything that I’ve gained to take the next steps to world class universities.”
